We are excited to have achieved Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Earned Recognition scheme status.

As part of the process, we reviewed and ensured that all the relevant training, systems and processes were in place.

DVSA earned recognition for vehicle operators is a new way to prove our organisation meets driver and vehicle standards. We regularly share performance information with DVSA and in return, our vehicles are less likely to be stopped for inspections, avoiding any potential delays or issues this may cause to our projects and customers.

By sailing through the intense audit process, we’ve demonstrated our commitment to compliance and best practice.

“Achieving Earned Recognition status is the result of work we began a couple of years ago. With Novadata, our transport consultant we reviewed then strengthened all our transport systems and processes, so we were in great shape for the Earned Recognition audit.

This not only stands us in good stead should anything unforeseen happen while our drivers are on the road, it is also helping to further our plans for future expansion and progress.

An added advantage is emerging in our recruitment process, as our drivers know that we fulfil all our legal responsibilities. They can rest assured that we aren’t going to ask them to compromise in observing any aspect of transport legislation or put themselves in a legally vulnerable position. We are clearly perceived as a conscientious employer, as well as an exemplary O Licence holder.”
